Suva, Fiji9 contributions
We had a great stay at Papageno. The resort is beautiful and laid back, and the large bure we stayed in was incredible. The food was all delicious. Of special note, however, was the kindness and care that we received. One of our party had a medical issue (and eventually had to be flown out of Fiji back to his home abroad). One of the two ladies that own and operate the resort is a nurse, and she was proactive in caring for the sick guest. I can't begin to explain the comfort she brought to that guest and our family. She is an amazing person, on top of being a top notch nurse. We'll never forget the care she provided, her humor, and her grace. Papageno is fantastic resort run by fantastic people.

Papageno was a wonderful experience. From the first minute I felt like family. This is the most relaxing, welcoming resort I have been to. Thoughtful touches at every turn. I highly recommend Papageno.

What a privilege to spend 10 days at this magnificent eco-resort! We loved every aspect of this unique experience: beautiful, comfortable accommodation; delicious sumptuous meals with ingredients grown in the resort's organic garden; staff that treated us like family; exquisite gardens and surroundings; wonderful trips for snorkelling and walks to waterfalls -- all in all, a most enjoyable, relaxing and rejuvenating experience. We look forward to our next visit and would recommend this resort to anyone who longs for a remote island experience.

Bula! My girlfriend and I recently spent a week at the beautiful Papageno Resort on Kadavu and had a wonderful experience. We took full advantage of what the resort had to offer: Scuba diving, Manta Ray snorkel trip, Waterfall hike, Daku village visit and the Vunisei District School trip. Of all the activities we took part in, however, perhaps the best experience we had was our time spent with the staff. Playing pool and darts in the Tuku Tuku room, boat rides along the coast, ping-pong tournaments, volleyball matches, and the Kava ceremony - it was the people who work at Papageno who made our trip truly special. I want to thank all of the employees at Papageno, especially the kitchen who prepared 3 amazing locally-sourced meals a day, for giving us a wonderful, relaxing and culturally-immersive experience. Bula Vinaka, Papageno! We can't wait to see you again! Chris & Elle

Coming from France. We spent a wonderfull week, in July, in this resort, with our three sons. It was the Paradize! Beautifull place (beach, possibility to get canoe to visit the coast and the closest island, marvelous fishes as soon as you do snurkling, trip to see manta ray, ...), kind people who did their best for you to discover their country and played with us (volley-ball, ping-pong, snooker, ...). Thanks to Taito (for our three sons, fans of rugby, unforgettable match in his village!), to Tom, to Sivo, to Warren (for the discussions we had,about Fiji and his ecology point of view), and to all the other I couldn't write the name... I, at last ,understand why Fiji rugby players have difficulties to come back to France once they are in Fiji! Thérèse, Aubin, Antoine, Félix & Christophe.
